MYOB Business - How to remove discount column on Invoice

The Services & Items invoice layout shows a discount column. You'd think if I typed zero in the discount column, it would simply not print the entire column, but no, it prints the column with zeros. This tells my clients "We offer discounts, but NOT to you!" Therefore I'm forced to use the Service layout and miss out on the functionality of the Services & Items.

 

I see people have been complaining about this problem for years. Come on MYOB!!

  • I have sent a number of invoices to myself as test invoices and found that if the discount column is left at 0 the discount column is not vsible to the customer as it is omitted from the sent invoice. I am happy with this as it does give me to option to show a discount if I so choose.

    You are so right!

     

    I have previously posted about this issue but no resolution as yet.

     

    Without fixing the discount column by removing or creating a third template there are components of the program that cannot be used which is frustrating.

    Also having to type in an item each time an invoice is created is time better spent on other things.

      Hi pippypip, I had done the exact same thing with test invoices prior to making this post. At the time my test invoices were definitely showing the discount column with 0. When I saw your reply, I did the test again and this time... the discount column was omitted just as it was for you! Hooray!!

       

      I know others have been complaining about this issue for some time and it appears that MYOB have finally corrected it. Thank you MYOB for the fix and thank you pippypop for bringing the fix to my attention.
